Re: Flush Type Finishing Washer Used on Tail?
Yep, working in the baggage bay is a pain literally. There
is a picture somewhere of Sam I believe it is, curled up in his
baggage bay looking comfortable working on his controls.
I am lucky if I can get half way in these days as the joints are not as supple as they used to be, and no longer the skinny apprentice that 45 years ago used to get sent up the Gazelle tailcone to fit the cables up the fin.
I agree, you have to be careful with power drivers and always
start the screw first. Taking my cowls off or on by hand is about
10 times longer than with the PD. My PD like most these days have
a variable torque feature so easier to see if the screw locks up
and just check tight when finished by hand. If you go out on the
line today, most mechs have a PD in their kit. Otherwise how would
they meet the 90 minute turn around. :-)
